    How To: Ignition switch Install. 07 Sport Trac

    Hey man. For what it's worth mine hasn't been right for a few years. But I didn't want to replace it again!

    door seals coming loose

    Thank you! I didn't realize how easy this was. I removed the plates on the floor with large screw driver. They just popped loose. I then pull the weather stripping away around the frame, but only partially (just below the top of the doors). I used a $6 weatherstrip adhesive I got at a local...

    door seals coming loose

    Long story short.. I noticed all my door seals are coming loose on the inside of the vehicle. The doors themselves seem okay, but I can't be 100% certain. Anyway, there are obvious gaps on the rear doors. I can put my fingers through them. If I push the seal, it shifts and creates a gap on the...

    Squeaking front end

    The drivers side (2007) of my Explorer started squeaking over the winter. When I had it in for an oil change I asked it to be looked at, but it wsan't doing it at that time. Now, just this past weekend both driver's and passenger's side are doing it. It is incredibly annoying. Here's a...

    How To: Ignition switch Install. 07 Sport Trac

    I hope it's something easy, but sounds very electrical. Any change the power locks go on or off at the same time? I had a 1998 Explorer that would have the power locks go on and off, while simultaneously other random electrical things happened. The wipers would not turn on, radio strangeness...

    Any chance I can get one already painted to match somewhere?

    Bumper cracked

    Hello Everyone, I had a small incident driving in the woods where my rear end met a tree. Fortunately, the damage was pretty minor. However, I'm having trouble determining what part is in the picture below. It looks like it's a separate piece of the body, but I guess it could be physically...

    ABS code C1145 - Intermittent

    Thanks. I did find the connector by the ECU. It's hard to get to, so I have not tried to look at it closely yet. I'm a little confused about what you said. Is the sensor in the hub, or at the other end?

    ABS code C1145 - Intermittent

    Well, half of it does. I was thinking the issue would be more on the other end. I will try the end by the ECU, but it probably does not move as much as the end at the hub side.

    ABS code C1145 - Intermittent

    Hey Everyone, I've been searching and researching, and I just can't seem to nail down what my specific problem might be. I am hoping for some guidance. My ABS, TC, and Wrench light are coming on intermittently. I can go several days without any lights, and then get the light every day. It...

    Changed Thermostat... broke a part :(

    Thanks guys! That looks like it's the one. I'll have to call my Ford parts place and see if they can get it. I can't find it on any of the local parts places.

    Changed Thermostat... broke a part :(

    Hey Everyone. I changed the thermostat in my 2007 Explorer tonight. When I was putting things back, I snagged on something and broke it. Unfortunately, I don't know what it is. I've attached a photo of it in place, and broken. Can anyone tell me what this is so I can replace it? It's...

    How To: Ignition switch Install. 07 Sport Trac

    I was having the dome light issue, precisely. Hit a bump, and the light would come on. Following this thread I replaced the ignition switch. Problem solved.. new problem created. When I remove the key and open the door, the vehicle beeps at my as if I left the key in. I can reset this...

    Homelink Visor

    That overhead console is great. I didn't realize they made those. I was looking at the 50-GENK40A Mirror, but it's $200. I do have a sunroof and rear heating, so that device would definitely work. I'm a little concerned about the color. Mine is "camel", I think. That looks pretty close.

    2008 Explorer interior lights turn on unexpectedly

    I see a lot of "Me toos" here. My 2007 explorer eddie bauer edition just started doing this. I correlated it immediately to the way the keys sit and I am able to get them to run off by wiggling the keys. Now that I know it's the ignition cylinder, I will take a look at what it takes to repair...

    Homelink Visor

    Hey All, I've seen, and read, and ton of posts about adding homelink. I have a 2007 Eddie Bauer Edition Ford Explorer. I would like to add this to my visor. I found some modification step that I can most likely perform here: http://www.raptorforumz.com/showthread.php?t=13814 Here's my...

    2007 Ford Explorer... Tire options

    Hey Everyone, My Explorer has hit 80k, and it's time to get some tires. (They are quite low) This is a 4WD, V8, Eddie Bauer edition. The current tires are 235/65/18. I really want to get something bigger. However, my tire place recommended against it. Indicating it can screw up the...

    Ambient temperature wrong

    Hey all, I have a 2007 Explorer. Last week, I treated myself and had it detailed. I noticed when I was driving home that my most of the statistics on the dashboard were reset. Fuel Economy, Trip A, Trip B, etc. I thought for some reason maybe the battery was disconnected. Odd. The...
